Use the 23 head you already have. What mods do you have? The 23 head will out flow any thing you want to do. Hey welcome to FF.

Get a Steeda sri, do a bsd plug= remove the balance shafts & put a plug in the feed hole to the b/s. Lower it & you can add a svt front brake kit. Plus add a Steeda sts too.

The cool thing about these cars and the fact you have the 2.3 motor is that you can liven them up A LOT with simple bolt-ons. Cold air intake, header, catback exhaust and tune, along with simple suspension upgrades will make people not believe that it's a focus anymore.
